If it’s true that Jacobs was interrogated about his deceased brother, I’m so glad that Francis wasn’t traded there. Imagine the damage that could have been done to him on the camp!

■■■■■■ hell, I hadn’t even thought of this. That would have been disasterous.


#246

He would have been lost to football forever if that happened.

In my long working life, employers (usually very large multinationals) have run team-building and team-bonding “camps”. One I did back in the 1980’s was just downright dangerous physically and very dangerous emotionally. We nearly lost a guy to drowning in a water based exercise, where we were rafting across a wide expanse on crafts the “team” built. We did lose a young lady who quit, after an “embarassment” session and she was never seen again at work. The irony was that this Company had always had as number 1 on your yearly objectives “safety”. Most of us just went along with all the stuff thrown at us, but I am sure some never really recovered.

This crowd the Crows used need to be investigated by WorkSafe or someone like them, as these practices are not safe. I thought this type of BS was gone for “training”, but obviously not.

When I was in recruitment, the industry used and still probably does psychological assessments which can be just a questionairre or an interview with a consultant. I had expected these consultants to be trained psychologists but more often than not they had no qualifications. Again a potentially dangerous practice.

Maybe they should have just looked at introducing a more contested style of football. They’ve been front runners for while. Last year they were just very good front runners and there weren’t a lot of teams around good to expose them for it.


#249

Eddie Betts, just wow


#250

It’s a fake


#251

Really? Dammit, it looked so good.


#252

Agree. I played it again and the lightning struck the same.


#253

That’s the first time it has ever happened according to folklore.


#254

Adelaide have been cleared by the AFL over the preseason camp.

Huge surprise that…

If that was a typical workplace boot camp then people would be getting fired considering how many complaints have come from it.
